I wanted to get some opinions on this pc build. I'll mainly be using this for gaming and for college work so it might appear as overkill at first but I intend to not change computers for quite awhile. Anyways anything you guys see that I'm paying to much for or a better option is available by all means please say so. Thanks in advance. http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/saved/1EU9NB

I'm liking the looks of that. I wasn't planning on putting one together myself but it does seem to be a better route. Only thing I'm iffy on is putting in a liquid cooling system but from the looks of it I shouldn't have to many problems. Much thanks g-unit

You don't really need liquid cooling though - just a strong air fan like the one I linked to will get you 4.5GHz easily.
